Mormon Island Wetlands State Park

There are many trails and parks which surround Folsom Lake in Northern California. I have driven by this one a million times, and to be honest, had never even noticed it was a park before. Last fall I drove by and noticed some pretty glorious fall foliage and ever since then I had wanted to check it out. It’s winter here and it’s been raining in NorCal finally. So, when we had a break from the rain, the boy and I brought our rain boots and checked it out. The park is pretty basic and has only a small trail where mountain bikers seem to enjoy. No wildlife was out so the puddles were the star of the show for my son. I couldn’t help but think of Ireland seeing what would surely be called a Fairy Tree in that part of the world.
